Reasons for Exemption
This project is a minor alteration to an existing highway with no expansion of its existing use. There are no known or anticipated significant impacts to any environmental resource. Sinusoidal rumble strips will be used, which are quieter than traditional rumble strips, and gaps will be placed in front of businesses and residences to avoid excess noise for nearby communities.
